COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
America...Beer...Almost like they go hand and hand, right? Except for that time when they didn’t. American craft beer has waged warfare on the old mainstays and historical roots of the beer world to earn its place in history. Where we fail to stand tall is in our lagers, where the scene is dominated by watered down, mass produced golden lagers. We offer our Amber Waders as a substitute. A lager with plenty of rich, malty, bready flavor, that is as smooth as its counterparts but stands on its own in flavor. So that our daughters might drink better beer than we did.

shadey (1987) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 2, 2015
12oz bottle. Pour is a dark garnet with minimal head of tiny white bubbles. Aroma is candi-ish and a little medicinal. Flavors are dough, bread, toast, toffee... although a little on the rough side. This needs a bit of work to rival the lagers of the old world, but it is getting close.

Aggiebob (235) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - APR 1, 2015
Draft at brewery. A reddish hazy color that poured with a small off white head. The caramel malty aroma offers a sweet taste with a smooth finish.

kaser (4003) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Dark red pour from draft at Bills in Orange Beach, tiny ring of white head. Aroma is malts and maybe a little cherry. Malts and earthy. Not bad. Not great

sonnycheeba (4192) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Tap at festival. Pours hazy copper with off-white head. Aroma is cereal and pale malts, light caramel, faint nuttiness, some toast, and some lager yeast esters. Flavor is malt-forward with some toast and caramel sweetness, light hops, and some lager yeast esters that are a little funky. Light/medium body and medium carbonation.

monkeychugg55 (950) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Dark copper with a large beige head. Appears to be heavily carbonated. The aroma is toasty, with some thick caramel malt, some lager yeast and a touch of a medicinal note. The flavor starts out malty and sweet but turns to dryness and finishes slightly astringent.

snoworsummer (3145) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Pours hazy copper with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like light hops, grapefruit, grassy, musky, and a little nutty. Light body and low carbonation. Smells musky, like light corn, nutty, light hops.

Vestlake (211) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Pours a amber color with a quickly dissipating head. Nice malt aroma. Taste starts off with a nice malty flavor and then an unexpected hop bitterness at the end. This beer would be better without the bitterness.

TXBadger (1887) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Pours a clear dark amber color with off white head. Caramel malt and toast on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with malt.

suprchunk (2581) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Hazy amberish color. Small couple white bubbles atop. No lacing. Carbonic aroma of malt. Taste is a slightnutty malt. Ton of unnecessary bitterness in the back.
